Of my trek through Oscar history
Why I did this, still a mystery
We’re at the point of Oscar flicks
When studios all know the tricks

Bland films win to our dismay
Better nominees they’re ducking.
(One post more)
But then they’ll go the other way
Korean films, or monster fucking.

One more post of trying to find

A new Star War had begun,
But a bunch of rabid fanboys
Ruin both for everyone.

Disney runs amuck
Buys up all they can
Knows we’re all awestruck
For Marvel’s Iron Man
Princesses still sell
Pixar always scores
But why make a new thing when you can buy Star Wars

(Can Casablanca be unthroned?)
Some are blatant Oscar bait

My fight’s with yoooooouuuuu

But nostalgia-based revivals
Prove that brand names never end.

What 2010s films had in store
